My favorite breakfasts include fruits… especially now that we’re starting summer and the berries are all in season.
Last week we spent a few days at my sister’s home and I love going to the farmer’s market to get a bunch of berries to serve at breakfast. But eating strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries on their own may seem to you a little boring. Why not mix them up with a little cheese??
Italians use ricotta cheese in both savory and sweet dishes… morning, noon and night. So taking a little inspiration from the land of the mammas, here’s my latest breakfast concoction.
RICOTTA AND BERRIES
Mix your favorite fresh berries – strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries, sometimes you could even add grape tomatoes. Hey, they’re berries too!! 1 cup ricotta cheese 1 tbs agave nectar, plus more to drizzle on top
- Mix in a bowl the ricotta cheese and the agave nectar to give it some sweetness.
- Add your favorite mix of berries.
- Drizzle some additional agave nectar on top.
It’s creamy and tangy at the same time… you could also use honey if you prefer instead of the agave nectar.
